Mock Draft 4.01
In mock 1.0, I said that Winston would shock the mainstream by putting up a 25-30 Wonderlic… At the Combine, his football IQ was being compared to Peyton Manning’s. Looks like the media’s ‘immature thug’ story was a bit one-sided.
“The heart wants what it wants.” Imagine having a girlfriend who is great at all the relationship stuff, but is only a 5/10 in the looks department. That’s Foles to Chip Kelly. When you think you have a chance with a girl whom you think is a 10/10 physically (Mariota), you don’t think logically. You’re overwhelmed emotionally.
Jacksonville doesn’t mind taking the perceived best defender in the draft.
Credit to Daniel Jeremiah for predicting that White had Julio Jones speed.
Cooper’s stock didn’t drop, but Kevin White surged ahead of him.
Shelton remains the consensus pick at 7. Momentum may be slowly turning downward.
Even with a projection to guard, most scouts put Scherff as one of the top talents in the draft.
Parker did about as well as expected and remains a good bet to reunite with Bridgewater.
Flowers is expected to be a run-mauling right tackle.
Dupree had a sensational Combine and is now discussed in the group of Gregory/Fowler/Beasley.
Collins needs to move to guard, but the Dolphins have a major need at that position.
Armstead’s disappointing 40 time has been attributed to poor running form. Good vertical and his measurables did end up similar to Calais Campbell.
He locked up the top CB spot with a 4.32.
I was hot for Humphries before he got the Daniel Jeremiah push recently. He is the top left tackle in the draft.
A great Combine put Kendricks ahead of the other ILB prospects.
A draft-day shocker… but what else do you do when your only QB is Johnny Rehab?
Collins should ultimately follow the same draft pattern as Clinton-Dix last season.
Brown is solidly in the 15-20 realm.
Count me among the Shane Ray haters.
Melvin Gordon went from ‘special’ to ‘not Jamaal Charles’ at the Combine, putting Gurley back on top at RB.
Pass rushers are clearly the strength of this class. Harold matched high expectations in the measurables.
Peat is a left tackle, but he’s a project. Run blocker.
Another pass rusher who had a tremendous Combine.
The erstwhile Quinten Rollins buzz has shifted over to Collins. Ran an acceptable 4.4.
Wade Phillips has a little bit of an unorthodox 3-4 scheme that would suit the metrics and abilities of Goldman.
Gordon is still unlikely to fall out of the first round despite bland measurables.
Nose tackles aren’t easy to find, and they need some beef on the d-line.
It’s fair to say that a WR with size is a position of need in Seattle.
Some have Davis solidly in the first round, others think he’s lazy.
